Certainly what you say is true. But my point is about how people continue to let these monsters attain absolute power. If you or I tried to do that, we'd get nowhere. So how does anyone gain the throne of totalitarianism?

I probably was mistaken to add in the part about the very noticeable absence of recognition of Stalin and Mao who certainly deserve to be a constant topic. One of the reasons I have come to believe this is a ruse designed for the ideological convenience of leftist educators is that I've read comments by professors about this strange disparity. 12 to 0 "in favor" of teaching about fascism at the schools where they teach. There is a smoking gun here, denying it isn't objective or impartial.

The glaring exceptions are verifiable experts like Professor Stephen Kotkin, how many people today even know he's written definitive books on Joseph Stalin.

We know from "the news" that today most people in the last 2 or 3 generations all believe that socialism is benign. This is the opposite of the situation in academia when I was still in school - decades ago. Without that perspective, no one can know how badly they are being led astray. And of course, they don't.

Thank you for taking the time to comment on my story, I sincerely appreciate it.
